West Virginia firms awarded road construction bids

CHARLESTON, W.Va. — The West Virginia Department of Transporation has awarded two companies with construction bids for projects in Marshall and Roane counties.

Litman Excavating, operating in New Martinsville, will be responsible for improvements to state Route 2. The project will include widening the two-lane road to four lanes between Kent and Franklin, a two-mile section. Litman Excavating submitted a $21.9 million bid, which was less than $1.6 million below estimates. The project is scheduled to be completed in September 2022.

Kanawha Stone, based in Poca, received the bid for relocating the Scott Miller Hill Road bypass. The $40.4 million bid came in nearly $13 million below estimates and is expected to be completed by the end of 2022.

Both projects are part of the Roads to Prosperity program.
